    chef wars is a great game with cute animations, a lot of recipes to discover, and more. i love the game so much but the app crashes randomly when the game is loading for boss fights, and challenges and even in the middle of the game. please fix this issue, thank you :) (my device is android 9.0)
  • Fun, but some problems... Jul 2, 2018

    By trumpsevil546
    This game has had me addicted for the past week, and I must say it is quite a fun game. Of course, there are a few minor issues. One thing is that I wish that the chefs available for gems were also obtainable in a location, such as the Russian general, who is only available with gems although he should be in Moscow. Also, the game has been crashing for me recently. It can be infuriating because it always happens after I win a battle. Finally, I'm not sure if it makes sense for there to only be staples in cities. If anything there would be more rare ingredients. But other than that it is a good game, and you clearly care more about your players than most games do, this is the only game I've seen that has the developers actually responding instead of using an automated response. Thanks for your time.

    Are you looking for a casual game that requires no thinking and just blind tapping? Are you looking for a game that teaches you nothing at all? Are you into those games that makes you invite your friends so you can get to the next level? Well, if you answers yes to any of these questions above, then you can stop and go download something else... This is a game that will consume your mind and teach you a thing or two (or 900) about food. Not only will you see some familiar dishes and ingredients, but you will also learn so much more about food that you don’t already know - origins, genres, and geographies... yes.. knowing where cities are (think global) will actually help you navigate the game... now you must be regretting not paying attention in your 9th grade social studies class... anyways, stop wasting time reading meaningless reviews here, and just go download this game... try it once, you will like it, if you don’t, try it twice... give it some time and you will be hooked in no time!

    Very enjoyable game. I love how many different recipes from different cultures you can create. I love that I can play when I only have a few minutes, but enjoy playing enough to get engrossed for hours. This is the best most original cooking game I've played.

    I’m an avid gamer and have recently been addicted to mobile gaming but I can not stand the “pay-to-win” or “wait-for-energy” types that ultimately force you to watch ads just to get into the real game content. Trust me, I’ve gone through possibly 100+ games since the iPhone came out and Chef Wars has been my absolute favorite. I literally haven’t stopped playing since I downloaded it weeks ago. Honestly, even though the game is free, I would have gladly paid for it. Overall, the game mechanics are simple and easy to approach but the battles are a challenge to master. Hundreds of recipes and ingredients to collect gives you plenty to do even after you complete the main storyline. Not to mention the additional characters that you meet along the way which have their own adventures. Dear GOD the Art is painfully cute and with well executed animations (who knew you could do so much with 2D!?) Trophies to win and a social leaderboard satisfies my competitive nature. And as someone who used to develop games, I greatly appreciate how little the lag time is when switching between apps or how I can ALWAYS resume where I left off no matter how long my phone has been idle or what interrupted it. Gold stars all day! Bravo. Thank you Mind Cake Games for restoring my faith in mobile gaming. GG, Cami (edit: idk why the name says that)

  • I AM ADDICTED !!!! Nov 16, 2017

    By skipisky
    ok.. so, i have had my fair share of games in the past, but i have NEVER had a game that I actually really, really loved. Im definitely not into baking or cooking, and I’m really bad at making dishes, but this game makes me feel like i could be a chef. Believe me when i say i have been nonstop playing this game. I can’t remember what day i bought it specifically, but i can say that ever since then, I’ve been playing it daily! I usually spend 1-2 hours playing it and i am so in love with everything about this game! The graphics, the colors, the characters and their personalities, the variety of ethnicities and cultures and their food. I definitely recommend this game for those who want to try something new, or maybe even for those who just like adventure and well.. food. If I could, i would rate this game 1,000,000 stars out of 5

  • Increase Recipe Capacity and Chefs Aug 29, 2019

    By Itsamyaaace
    I just wanted to say I have been obsessed with the game! I really enjoy grinding to unlock all the characters and recipes. The only downside for me is that I paid to unlock Tubs only to find out later that I can’t recruit him because the limit is 10 chefs. I think it would be really cool if the game would increase its chef capacity so that we can pull up the chefs instead of recruiting them and then dismissing them and then having to find them and recruit them again which is a hassle. Also if you could increase the recipe capacity that would really make the game more convenient and easier to pull up recipes for the tags I need. Overall, I really enjoy the game and I can’t wait to unlock all the recipes. Thank you!

    Asesome fun game!! I truly enjoyed the overall cuteness of the characters, recipes, ingredients, and story. One tiny problem is that I sometimes didn't get the diamond reward after the boss fight even though I was connected to the internet. It happened like 5 times already. I sure hope in the future it won't happen again. Anyway, great game and big thumbs up on the research effort on the varieties of the countries' dishes.

    I like this game and its mechanics but the reason why I'm giving this game only 2 stars instead of 5 stars is because the last UPDATE for this game happened 2 YEARS AGO!! I'm ready to see something new or see new chefs be added to this game. Anything really since the last update happened in 2019 on July the 4th. Developers please wake up and update this game with some new chefs plz.

    It's been about four-five days since it says the app cannot connect to the internet. I couldn't log into my account for daily rewards and rankings. I have checked with my connection, used my mobile hotspot, my husband's hotspot and still couldn't connect. My internet is on and okay. My storage space is also not full, so why can't I log into my account? Please fix it. If this persists for another week I will have no choice but to uninstall the game as this is ridiculous.

    Gameplay is fun and interesting, but it is too difficult to continue. First off, there are way too many recipes to learn, but you can only know 10??? Ingredients come up way too randomly, with no way of remembering where to find a particular one. Also, it sucks to fail when you use 2 or 3 rare ingredients and don't get the dish. Too much money to upgrade chefs and recipes. Overall, nice idea but terrible execution.

  • AWESOME!!! Oct 21, 2017

    By Michelleee31
    This game is fantastic!!! I love how there are so much dishes and recipes to choose from with the ability to explore! It's mostly luck to get the right stuff you need specially rare ones, but nonetheless, the game is a breath of fresh air. It has so much color and the game is funny too! I love the comments of the judges 😂💕 and the storyline got me hooked! I even had my boyfriend download it so we can test out our luck in ingredient hunting and beat baron! 😂 i love this game so much! I wish there's another way to get chef recipe slots though and if there could be an option for the minimap to be able to scroll to check out nearby areas or where you are coz it's easy to get lost when you're roaming around 😅 But other than that it's super good! great job to the team! :) more power to you guys! 🍕
  • Amazing customer service Nov 8, 2017

    By Azabelle555
    I love his game! It’s my favorite app game. Very unique and interesting but since the last update I’ve been having a problem! Every time I exit a match whether I’ve won or lost the game will stop responding. I can’t move around on the map and I can push the buttons (they move when I’ve touched them) but they don’t do anything. They won’t open my chefs page or options or anything. Please help, it happens constantly and is making the game unplayable because I have to close and open the game each time. (I’ve tried waiting it never works) Edit: I contacted them through email about the issue and they got back to me within two hours! Very helpful and dedicated to their customers!

    Overall an excellent and unique game. Some issues/suggestions though: 1 the loading time is atrocious, like 30 seconds for a single battle. 2 gems are a bit hard to come by after the boss battles, since pvp and daily rewards are both slow and unreliable. I wish there was a system to get gems by paying cash, for example an expensive roulette you can play for random ingredients and gems? 3 it takes way too much time to buy ingredients. I dont mind the rng system but i wish there was an option to make 5 or 10 puchases at once, just to speed up the process.
  • Love this game! Oct 19, 2017

    By GymnastGirl58
    Ok, I just want to start off by saying I LOVE this game so much! It’s awesome and I’m never bored with it! It is a really great way to waste some time, and I find that even if I run out of money I can still play. Also, it’s not necessary to buy stuff like in other games. I only have one complaint. I can’t seem to pass the showdown at Puerto Del Sol. I have played this round so many times and I have the same dish as Micheal St. Micheal, but every time he gets two 10s and a 5 and every time I get two 10s and a 3. I’m not sure how to pass this level. I’ve also tried other foods and nothing works. Other than that I absolutely love this game and recommend it for everyone. (Edit: I was able to pass the level by upgrading my meal!)

    The game is quite great, but there are few things that bother me. The gems is way too rare and the chef recipe slot is way too small. I mean there are a lot of recipes, over a thousand if i remembered correctly. It's quite annoying to delete and recreate the dish that you've already learned because the slot is not enough and just because the recipe is not relevant to some of the contests or battles. Please allow more base slots for the chefs so that it'll be way more accomodative for the player.

    Okay so I LOVE this game to bits but I recently got a new phone so I've been trying to upload my save data. The problem is, when it comes to connecting my account, it only lets me log on once in a blue moon. The times I can log on, it won't load my save data, it kinda just freezes and I have to close off the app and relogin. I got really far in my last game and I would hate to have to start over. What do I do?
  • Very cute but crashes Apr 2, 2018

    By Alison Sherk
    EDIT: Since I only now got notified of the developer responding, I’d like to say that I got an iPhone SE for Christmas and since then the game has worked fine :) Thank you for the response, even if I’m several months late seeing it lol I thought this was really cute but I'm stuck on the tutorial because without fail, the game crashes before it can finish. I can even get to the very end but when it tries to load up the next section, it will crash then and the game makes me re-do the tutorial. I have a 4S, and while I know it's outdated my operating system should still handle this. I like the artwork and the concept, I just wish I could enjoy the actual game :(
  • Performance Sep 10, 2020

    By Kurosakinhi_FAV
    About 1 year ago, I played this game and it was really fun for the most part. The art is good and the way to battle/collect dishes are very fun too. (Although, I hope there will be an update to the artwork because if it looks a year ago, it’ll look so nice in the future) The performance is what is quite mediocre. The loading is a bit choppy and it feels a bit off. Could you please add an update? This game was so much fun but I ended up deleting it because it didn’t feel as new as it did.
  • scam? Nov 23, 2019

    By mia woo
    i saved up gems from boss fights in order to buy a chef through the gem tab at the top of the screen. I finally reached thirty gems and bought a chef, but the chef isn’t showing up in my chef section, it only shows the main character. It took me a week to save that many gems, and now it’s wasted. What do I do now?

    Its an overall great and cute game. The artsyle is amazing and theres a wide variety of food recipes you can learn and characters to get. You can even play offline! The only concern i would have is to make sure your saves go thru and have the right account linked up to it. There was a time i got far into the game and when i reinstalled it i couldnt go back and had to start all over.

    By Lola Bunny
    I like the game but there are few issues that are preventing me from enjoying it any further, like how competitions FORCE you to get rare ingredients for a theme in order to make progress. The RNG for rare ingredients doesn't help this issue, for example; I'm at a main event that requires custard to be used in a dessert, custard is hard to get and I can't progress storywise without it. The limited amount of recipes you can make also makes this hard.
